Baby+Bump Postpartum Doula

Doula? That's a funny word.

This is usually the reaction from most when hearing the word for the first time. So what is a Doula anyway?

Pronounced, “Doola”, it is defined as “A woman who is trained to assist another woman during childbirth and who can provide support to the family after the baby is born. Doulas offer resources and education during prenatal and postpartum visits,  provide emotional and physical support as comfort measures during birth and advocate for your birth choices”

Also know as a Postnatal Doula, their support is intended to fill the gaps left by our customary postpartum practices which usually include only medical procedures and occasional checkups.  Postnatal Doula’s are trained in postpartum adjustment, newborn characteristics, care, feeding and development and the promotion of parent-infant bonding. They are experienced in supporting families through their postpartum experience. Coming into the home during the fourth trimester following birth, the doula’s role is to provide education, non-judgemental support and companionship; and to assist with the newborn care and family adjustment, meal preparation and light household tasks. Postpartum Doulas offer evidence-based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from childbirth, infant soothing and coping skills for new parents and can make appropriate referrals when necessary. 

So the question really shouldn’t be “What is a Doula”. It should be “What isn’t a doula? A Doula is what you NEED her to be. She is a supporter, a friend, a mediocre picture taker, therapist, a cheerleader, an information centre, an advocate,  a wing woman, motivational speaker, massage therapist and every now and then she is someone that will grab your hand and say “You can do this, everything is going to be ok” . We can’t promise that we will take away all your stress, pain and worry but we can promise you won’t have to do it alone.

"A Doula is like a good bra; There for support and will never leave you hanging"

Having a doula there to teach me how to help my wife with breastfeeding and help us organize the house was a real lifesaver. We were able to rest knowing James was being taken care of.
